Dr. Whitney White

Dr. Alan M. Smolen - Upper Westside Dentist

Dr. White strives to provide exceptional dental care and education to every patient, as she believes dentistry is more than just a profession–it has the ability to change the outcome of a person’s entire life. She discovered her passion for dentistry while participating in The Pipeline Program at the University of Michigan where she engaged in various hands-on activities with dental students and became intrigued by how much creativity and physical skill were involved.  Upon completion of her Bachelor of Science degree in Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Michigan, Dr. White went on to receive her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry.

While pursuing her dental degree, Dr. White completed outreach dental services for underserved communities in Lexington, and rural Kentucky. She also served as president of the UK chapter of the Student National Dental Association during which time she led the chapter to be awarded “Small Chapter of the Year” at the annual national convention.  Dr. White’s desire to continue broadening her skill set led her to NYC where she was matched as a resident at BronxCare Health System in the Bronx, NY. Upon completion of her residency program, Dr. White began working in the Hudson Valley. She is currently a member of the National Health Service Corp, the American Dental Association, and the Association of Black Women Dentists.

A native of Lansing, Michigan, Dr. White enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling the world, reading, indoor cycling, and trying new recipes.
